Hello Friends-

"Welcome back to this week's episode of, "The Cre8tive Life"- your weekly newsletter full of lifestyle tips, smiles, and musings.

I apologize in advance for the lack of content this week...I, again, ALMOST didn't even send anything out this week... because I am just feeling a bit drained...I'm still not quite sure what I will even feature or share this week... but, I wanted to do "something" to keep my word and weekly commitment of putting something out. In order to protect my energy, I have been in the midst of an even BIGGER social media and news detox than what I have already been doing...which means, I am pretty much only checking emails, focusing on my work projects, and watching mindless spirit lifting shows.

As always, sending lots of love and hugs to you all.

And, continued prayers that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy (mentally & physically) out there 💗. 


Random stories, pictures, video highlights, and other life musings can be found on my personal instagram page (@e101) and official brand page (@thecre8tiveartisan) throughout the week (when/if I end up posting anything).

*And, if you have missed any previous newsletters, feel free to check out the archive section on my website: HERE.


  • TIP 1: Don't focus on what you can't control.


  • TIP 2: Find a way to connect with some nature.


  • TIP 3: Celebrate a "small win."


  • TIP 4: Re-connect with an old friend.


  • TIP 5: Binge watch your favorite movies or old TV shows.


  • TIP 6: Have a game night with someone.


  • TIP 7: Bake (or make) something that you've always wanted to do from scratch.


Sharing the Fruit of The Spirit art that I made during my Artober challenge, and just wishing the world would walk in it...


This week's challenge is to:

Remember to breathe, and protect your spirit and energy!


I will be taking a bit of a mini pause on my community activations as I gear up for some new projects that will taking up a lot more of my bandwidth. But, be on the lookout for some (very sporadic) events here and there. (As doing these events, and sharing in community really does bring me joy.)

 And, if you haven't heard me say it lately, I want to thank you for your support and readership. It means a lot that you take time out of your day to take in my  little musings and life shares!

Lastly, if you happen to have any future topic ideas, or come across any events I should know about, PLEASE feel free to send those along my way. I always LOVE discovering and learning about new things! 

Have a great day, and be sure to take time to enjoy your life!
